A number of contemporary artists have donated works to the venerable Public Catalogue Foundation, to help fund the last remaining part of their mission to put all publicly owned paintings online. You can buy the pictures, including Carrowtegie Sea 2007 (above) by Barbara Rae RA, at an auction online, or in person on 19th November. From the auction website:

This Auction of new and recent paintings by leading British Artists will support the completion of the Public Catalogue Foundation’s project to put the UK’s entire collection of oil paintings on the Your Paintings website.

This website allows you to view an online catalogue of the works to be Auctioned and to leave an online absentee bid up until midday on Monday 19th November.

It also gives details of the live Auction which will be held from 6.30pm on Monday 19th November at Dartmouth House in Mayfair. To attend the live Auction please email

The Guest Speaker will be Sue Tilley.

The Auction will be conducted by Hugh Edmeades of Christie's.

Bid, bid, bid!
